A. Water skiing Issue
On Oct 23, five of 6 Park Commissioners recommended ending the special permit allowing waterskiing on Green Lake (the Board President only votes to break a tie). The Parks Board received and reviewed 170 comments on the issue. On Oct 27, Superintendent Gallagher agreed with the Board and ended the special permit, meaning there are no exceptions to the Seattle Municipal Code: power boats can be on Green Lake only to protect human safety and for rescues. Supt Gallagher sent a Thank-you letter to FOGL, which Ellen put on the website.
